Blend butter, flour, baking powder, garlic, salt and pepper to form a crumbly mixture. Add mashed potatoes and mix quickly. Mix in Oregon hazelnuts. After a few minutes, roll dough out on floured board, fold over once and chill for 20 minutes. Knead, roll and chill three more times. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough to 1 inch thick and cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Criss-cross top of biscuits with knife blade and brush with egg yolk and water mixture. Place on greased baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, until biscuits are a shiny gold.
